I bought my AC 5015 heavily used in 2007. I proceeded to rearing and do a valve job, as the engine was very tired. Hour meter is broken at 1500 hrs. It has very good performance for a 1 liter diesel engine. It has 3 speeds and reverse and a 3 speed transfer for 9 forward speeds. I never use the granny transfer, as it has enough grunt in the high range to do most jobs, such as boxblading my gravel driveway and mowing with a 6 foot finish mower.
This is a re-badged Hinomoto (Japanese) tractor and the build quality is excellent. My only dig is that parts are very expensive when available (no dealer help).
